So I'm playing a freeroll on fulltilt last week. I'm playing pretty tight because I had too.... crappy cards were falling from the sky into my lap. I made it to the first break with a couple OK hands, first hand back I get 8 8 (red) I limp in flop comes down A88 so I pushed all in 3 people call I triple up. So now I'm stoked in the top 50( 2000) seats. Nothing that great again till the next break. I get moved to another table with the chip leader shes got everyone covered 3 times over about (170000 chip)I'm on the BB with 73000 chips I pick up AK (h) I put half my stack out 4 people call!!! flop comes AK8 rainbow so I pushed it all in evreyone folded but the chip leader calls. Cards get flipped shes got JJ 4th st shows a 6c 5th st a J comes up .... taken out by trips. Did I jump the gun and play this wrong????

Yes and no in my book. Yes cause half your stack on a pure drawing hand is rather dangerous, especially if you miss. No because to me, AK suited is a good hand to be aggressive with preflop but only for an opening raise of 3-4XBB or a stiff re-raise. The All in was the right play just unfortunate luck. This probably sounds wrong but then again my book doesnt sell to well....

Does seem to be a pretty beefy bet preflop, and I'm not sure how aggressive the chip leader has been. In hindsight, with their hand, you weren't going to bet them out of the flop. With a smaller pre-flop raise, once you saw the flop you were probably pushing that hand anyway. A somewhat suprising call by the chip leader though with 2 overcards on their knaves.

re: Poker & This is still killing me
Preflop bet was a little too big and it didn't get players to fold but it was a good move to go all in after the flop. I don't know why she called with two overcards on the board. She must have known you had at least a King. Well, it was a lucky draw for her and a bad beat for you.
